I have always loved Carmex products and when I was told that I was receiving an opportunity to try out Carmex’s new product, Everyday Lip Conditioner, I couldn’t wait to try it! My poor lips can always use extra conditioning especially in these cold months. They tend to dry out a lot easier around this time of year and I have to become a manic lip balm user. I was sent 2 Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner and I love it!
First off, It’s orange flavored! I’m used to cherry flavored this or that so It was refreshing using something that was flavored differently. You can smell it immediately and you can also taste it when applying it. It doesn’t leave some weird aftertaste either. You know those orange flavored Popsicles with the ice cream in the middle? That’s what the flavor literally reminds me of. It’s like a sweet orange flavor.
Now, onto what it does for your lips. Carmex Everyday Lip Conditioner has 13 moisturizers that make your lips soft and smooth. It is creamy and fast absorbing. When I say fast absorbing, I mean fast absorbing! It’s non-greasy and it isn’t sticky either. Below is some more details:
“Like your lip balm on the lighter side? Our Lip Conditioner absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy, plus we blend a hint of natural orange flavor with 13 moisturizers to deliver extra-soothing results.
- Your skin’s lipid bilayer is made up of two layers of fatty acids; its job is to help keep moisture in the skin. Our Lip Conditioner includes lanolin, which replicates the way the lipid bilayer in your skin retains moisture.
- Our formula includes dimethicone to aid with moisturization and protect the tender skin on your lips.
- Our Lip Conditioner uses allantoin to effectively aid with moisturization plus help healing.”
Carmex Lip Conditioner is more like a lotion for your lips. It’s different than your typical lip balms because lip balms tend to stick around on your lips for a while. With this product, It doesn’t. It absorbs like your hand lotion does on your skin. After about 5-10 minutes, you don’t have anything on your lips anymore. One thing I don’t like about lip balms is that since it stays around for a bit, my lips feel rather waxy. With this, I don’t have to worry about it. Right after I put it on my lips, I can already feeling it working. My lips instantly feel softer and smoother and it also has healing power and I can also feel that working immediately too. You can feel the cooling sensation right after you apply it.
It is really creamy and when you sqeeze a little out at the applicator tip, you can see that it’s white in color and creamy somewhat like lotion. It glides on my lips and just in case you want me to say it again, it absorbs really quickly! It’s actually pretty refreshing on my lips and after only using it a couple days, my lips were soft and smooth without even using it! I typically just use it once in the morning and that’s it. You can use it to replace a lip balm but after I have been using it, I haven’t even had a need for lip balm. It does such an excellent job keeping my lips moisturized and with it’s own healing elements, I haven’t had any need for lip balms!
Another great use for Carmex Lip Conditioner is that you can use it under lip gloss or lipstick. Lip gloss doesn’t normally bother me but when I wear lip stick, it tends to make my lips feel and look a little dry and then my lip stick doesn’t look too hot. Keeping my lips moisurized with this product has been wonderful for that. I think it’s great and I love the way my lips feel!
